Upcoming PG Info Session has a wealth of information for prospective students
29 Jan 2013
Prospective students have an opportunity to learn about the University of Business School's postgraduate offerings at the Postgraduate Information Session on Wednesday, 30 January 2013.
All participants attending the information session will have the opportunity to talk directly with Business School academics, learning support staff and alumni who will be available to answer questions and provide one-on-one advice.
"The Business School's Information Sessions are designed to provide prospective students with a clear understanding of our postgraduate degrees and the benefits these offer in terms of personal and career development," said Associate Dean (Postgraduate Coursework) Professor John Shields, who will speak to participants about the postgraduate study options, course content, and career opportunities available through the School.
The evening will feature short presentations from Professor Shields and current Master of Commerce student Salma Farouque, followed by guest corporate speaker, Mr Andrew Knevitt,.
Mr Knevitt, Business Analysis Manager at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, will provide insight on the significance of industry partnerships in the world of business while Ms Farouque will share her experience of balancing work and postgraduate study with participants at the session.
"I think the flexibility of this course, combining part-time study with full-time work, is fantastic," said Ms Farouque. "Also, being able to immediately apply my learning in the workplace is of great value."
Participants will also have a chance to speak to scholarship student Sally Ingram, who is studying Master of Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations, and Adriana Heinzen, an international student with a background in the wine and food industry, now studying Master of Marketing focusing on consumer behaviour and digital marketing.
